Deferments and Default

Deferments: As long as students are enrolled in college (at least 6 credits) they can defer loan payments. If students experience financial problems in repaying loans, they may request economic hardship forbearance. Contact us for deferment forms.

Default of Loan: When a student's loan payment is past due, it goes into default. If you experience financial difficulties, contact  your loan servicer to make arrangements in order to avoid default. The consequences of default are serious:

  • All  delinquent loans -- overdue by more than 120 days -- are reported to the Credit Bureau.
  • Delinquent loans may be turned over to an outside collection agency or attorney.
  • Any additional costs will be the borrower's responsibility.
